    Sarah worked with me on my novel Heir to Ruin and was always willing to go the extra mile, editing, researching, and paying attention to theme and tone with care and skill. She is easy to work with and conscientious.

    I worked with Sarah on the first draft of my novel Heir to Ruin and she went above and beyond the call of duty. She did the research, read entire books on history to help me ensure accuracy, fact checked, made suggestions that always got me through. Her eye for theme and tone is as deft as her eye for punctuation and grammar. She is patient and kind and an absolute professional. A pleasure to work with and always honest.

    Sarah did the copyedit on my novel, The Curse of Joanie McFadden. She had an excellent sense of punctuation, language, syntax and sentence structure and was able to complete the edit much faster than I expected. Her work was thorough and professional. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who needs an efficient edit of their work.

    Excellent proofreading service from Sarah. Her close attention to grammar, syntax, feedback and advice on structure were particularly helpful when I was writing my English Literature research project. I definitely recommend her to anyone who wants an extra perspective on their essay writing.
